A routine inspection is a visual check performed to ascertain the serviceability of all visible components of
a parachute that is packed or rigged for use. The inspection will be made on all components that can be
inspected without opening the parachute pack. Prior to issue, a parachute rigger will administer this
inspection. Personnel parachutes issued for an air delivery operation and not deployed will receive a
routine inspection prior to being placed into ready-for-issue storage.
A pack-in-process inspection is performed at specified intervals during the packing of a parachute to
ensure that only authorized procedures and methods are being used. A parachute rigger other than the
packer or rigger preparing the applicable equipment for use will accomplish the inspection. The intervals,
at which the inspection is performed, are as follows:
Deployment bag will be given a complete inspection,
including static line and that portion of the static line that is
covered by the static line sleeve. Failure to do so could
result in serious injury or death to the parachutist.
For Army personnel, the In-Process-Inspector (IP) qualifications are IAW AR 750-32.
